    Have pop3 email account which I use Outlook Expess for my Comcast account. I have inbox,sent, and trash on Ipad. I would like to add a Save Folder to save certain emails but can't find a way. Any ideas?

    You will need to log into the web-based version of your email to create folders. Once you have folders, you will be able to move messages around.

    I would recommend, however, getting something like a gmail account and forwarding your comcast emails to that. You can set Gmail up to use IMAP, allowing you to have your mail sync'd on different devices/computers. If you can connect to Comcast with IMAP, that is a possibility as well.

    The thing with POP3 is that once you download the message off the server, you cant easily download it again to a different location.

    Thanks for your reply. I already have a Save folder on my online Comcast account. So that don't work. Any other ideas?

    Forward the comcast mail to a service that supports IMAP.

    As suggested - move to IMAP. A big advantage of moving to GMAIL is that you can get an email address that is yours regardless of what cable company or internet provider you have at the moment. It is a real pain to change email addresses...but get yourself a gmail account and you don't have to deal with that again. GMAIL also includes a lot of nifty features like calendar and contact sync, etc.

    Is there not a box to tick to not download it off the server like outlook and android phones ?

    See bolded text. Not every server/service allows that.

    I guess what it really boils down to is Uncle Steve gave us an inferior mail program that just wasn't thought out.

    no, not at all. I use it with no issues with my Exchange server for email/contacts/calendar and a 2nd email account (gmail) that is connected to by IMAP.

    I still say it is an inferior product. A simple task like creating a folder or two not supported makes it inferior.
